B-cycle battery recycling scheme

The Battery Stewardship Council Australia’s public program B-cycle Scheme has been designed to ensure the responsible recycling of used batteries.

90% of Australia’s handheld batteries brought into the country end up in landfill. Any used batteries not recycled properly and safely can leach toxic chemicals into the environment, or even cause fires in the home when stored.

The B-cycle Scheme will lead Australia’s efforts to responsibly manage the recycling of batteries and is set to be fully operational with a network of drop-off locations in retail spaces by January 2022.

B-cycle will be actively pursuing new industry participants such as household battery importers, manufacturers, recyclers and retailers to join the scheme.

It has been developed under the government’s $26 million Product Stewardship Investment Fund.
